First Linux Trunk Nightly Build of Mozilla Thunderbird Available
Sunday May 4th, 2003
joe writes in with some news from the Mozilla Thunderbird project page: "We have our first official Linux nightly build for the first time since Thunderbird moved to the trunk. Not to be out done, we also have a new Windows nightly which includes the latest code reduction work mentioned on May 2nd." Both builds can be downloaded from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/nightly/2003-05-03-trunk/. More information about the footprint reduction can be found in the change log.
long time since the Windows-Nightlies started.. Now only the 'Message Source' view needs to get reenabled. More interesting: why are the Linux builds for both Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird are so much bigger that the Windows builds?

Anyone else having problems with the Win32 build? I get an error dialog titled "phoenix.exe - Entry Point Not Found" saying "The procedure entry point NSGetStaticModuleINfo could not be located in the dynamic link library xpcom.dll" when trying to run the latest build.

"So when can we get a link to the TB builds on the little bar below "MozillaZine" on the main page? :)"
When there's a /latest/ directory we can point to.
I am just wondering what is the proper name would be used in the mozillazine main page?
As at today (2003.5.6), it shows 'px0.5' a the releases and 'Fb' for forum name and Nightlies. This might cause confusion to the 1st time visitors.
According to the new 'Mozilla Branding Strategy' dated April 25th:
Quote Begin--- 3. When referring to Thunderbird or Firebird before or during the 1.4 release cycle, make sure to use the project name with Mozilla pre-pended as "Mozilla Thunderbird" or "Mozilla Firebird" instead of Mozilla alone or Firebird/Thunderbird alone.
4. Use the names "Mozilla Browser" and "Mozilla Mail" to describe the Firebird and Thunderbird projects after the 1.4 release. Quote ended------
As Mozilla 1.5 is coming very soon, why we should not use "MF" and "MT" during Mozilla 1.4 development cycle or use "MB" or "MM" directly?
While everybody is talking about the outbreak of SARS, it reminds me TB is also famous for 'Tuberculosis'.
That's just a joke, anyway.

The recent reduction build seemed to have broke the Addressbook Card View pane on Win98SE. Is this a known bug?
Are the linux nightlies only for GLIBC 2.3 ?
